AJC Radio Program Announcement -- Spotlight On Capitol Hill... Where A Just Cause Puts the Spotlight on Members of Congress and Senators and Their Legislation; This Week -- Senator Charles E. Schumer (D - NY)

Spotlight On Capitol Hill Will Give Listeners an In-Depth Review of Legislation Critical to Justice, Safety and Prison Reform, Says Advocacy Group, A Just Cause

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - June 25, 2015) - AJC Radio airs a weekly segment called "Spotlight On Capitol Hill." The segment allows AJC Radio to shine the spotlight on members of Congress and the Senate from a positive perspective to allow for an upbeat review of legislation that covers a broad spectrum of initiatives. The program format allows listeners to weigh in and have lively dialogue with the AJC Radio team.

Advocacy group, A Just Cause, announces today that AJC Radio will be shining the spotlight on Senator Charles E. Schumer on Thursday, June 25, 2015 (www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10PM ET). "A couple of weeks ago we were honored to do a spotlight on Congressman Charles Rangel from New York," says Lamont Banks, A Just Cause Executive Director. "Congressman Rangel actually took the time to do an interview with AJC Radio, and it was an excellent opportunity for AJC Radio listeners to hear first-hand from one of the iconic Congressmen on Capitol Hill," adds Banks.

"This week we have chosen to shine the spotlight on the Senator from New York, Charles Schumer," Banks explains. "As we shine the spotlight on Senator Schumer we will recognize him for his service to the people of New York, and this nation. Mr. Schumer has served the public for several decades and that is truly something worthy of a spotlight," proclaims Banks

According to Senator Schumer's official website, "Senator Schumer represented the 9th CD in Brooklyn and Queens for eighteen years, where he established his reputation as a pioneer in the fight against crime and as a consumer advocate. Senator Schumer authored the Omnibus Crime Bill, which put 100,000 new cops on the street. He was the leading sponsor of the Violence Against Women Act, to combat domestic violence and sexual assault, and the Brady Bill, which instituted mandatory background checks for handgun purchases. He co-wrote the Assault Weapons Ban, and sponsored the Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which organized data on crimes of bigotry and allowed federal authorities to prosecute these crimes. He also sponsored legislation that required banks and credit card companies to provide greater disclosure to consumers."(http://www.schumer.senate.gov/about-chuck)

AJC Radio will spotlight Bills/Resolutions sponsored or co-sponsored by Senator Schumer including, but not limited to legislation regarding women's rights, veterans and law enforcement.

"'Spotlight On Capitol Hill' gives AJC Radio listeners an opportunity to hear about initiatives that are being pushed in Washington, D.C. that the listeners may or may not otherwise hear about," says Sam Thurman, A Just Cause. "AJC Radio listeners will definitely be enlightened as to the process of what it takes to make a law and they will also learn about Bills that never become law and why," adds Thurman.

"'Spotlight On Capitol Hill' gives us an opportunity to reach the masses as we review what's going on with our elected officials," says Banks. "There is so much turmoil in the country and in the world right now that it only made sense to the AJC Radio team to seek out members of Congress and the Senate, and allow the American people to get a Capitol Hill perspective," adds Banks.

"We make every effort to get the Congressman or Senator on the air, but as everyone knows their schedules are pretty hectic. However, I encourage the listeners to tune in, because just as Congressman Rangel appeared on the program to give his first-hand accounts of the state of the nation, you never know what surprise guest might be on the air," Banks concludes.
